I got the Amber update yesterday evening. Since I've installed it though, I haven't been able to charge my phone wirelessly. It's a little annoying, especially since I bought the charging plate last week. I don't think my plate is faulty for the aforementioned reason and also because the small light turns on when I lay my phone down on the plate.
However, even though the plate seems to detect the presence of the phone, the phone itself doesn't react, at all. I've tried everything short of a full reset, but nothing seems to work. I've noticed others having issues with wireless charging since the Amber update, but I was wondering if anyone else has had this same issue. I don't want to have to send my phone in for repairs, as I recently did it in order to finally get rid of the dust under the FFC and they kept my phone for three weeks and wiped all my data.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I could try?

so I tried discharging the phone completely to see if it would turn back on when on the wireless charging plate. And, surprisingly, it did, however, as soon as the OS had booted up, the charging stopped and I had to plug the phone in for it to stay on. It seems as though this is clearly a software issue though. The only thing I don't understand is why no one else who has Amber has reported having this problem. I'm a little bit at a loss. I don't know if I should bring my phone back on warranty or if I should wait for Nokia to address this problem, which they are maybe aware of.

Marc I'm in the same situation: my Lumia 920 doesn't charge wiressly when switched on. This just after the Amber update.
So you're not alone. If you find a solution please post it here, I'll do the same.

Mine is charging fine after the update, but the soft buttons wont work once I take off of the wireless charger after the update. I have to restart the phone for them to work, but once I put it on charing plate, they stop working.
I flashed it with portico rom update.

My Nokia 920 stopped charging yesterday on my Nokia NFC charger . I do not have the Amber or the GDR2 updates. I'm on the standard ATT ROM which has it's apps fully updated. I tested to see that another Nokia 920 does work with my charger. I can charge through the USB port. I haven't run the battery down to see if the charger will turn the phone on when placed on the charger when off. The charging light does turn on when the phone is placed on the plate.

It seems that I'm not the only one who has wireless charging problems with Lumia 920. I installed Amber-update to my Lumia and it worked flawlessly for a couple of days and then it just stopped taking wireless charging. The charging light on the plate turns on, but nothing else happens. Also if I place turned off phone on the charger, phone wakes up. However, it doesn't start to charge. I hope Nokia releases quickly a fix for this seemingly common and annoying problem.

Having similar problem, but mine seems to charge, but dings all night long. Does not seem to matter if Glance or two tap is on or not. Tried it on two different plates. I have not tried plugging it in yet, but as a Dr. I need the sound on and charging while I sleep.

My wife's 1020 keeps beeping every few minutes on the wireless charger driving me nuts so she keeps her phone on vibrate pretty much all the time.
Now I flash my 920 (AT&T) with the GDR2 update and have the same problem. It keeps chiming every few minutes when on the wireless charger. I turned off the Glance screen and that helped tremendously. It now only chimes about every 30-60 minutes. Guess people don't need to sleep at night with this update. Why is there no way to turn off that stupid chime anyway without silencing the entire phone?
I love wireless charging, but GDR2/Amber seems to destroy that pretty good. Hopefully, an update to the update will fix this.

Hey, just to add myself into this ring, my phone can't charge wirelessly since the Amber update.
GDR 3 didn't fix neither did a full wipe and reset of the phone.
I also have the curious case of it working when the phone is turned off and instantly stop working after the phone boots. Guess I can either flash the GB-Various rom onto my phone because I know that one works or just wait for Bittersweet.
